Luckin Coffee is a high-profile coffee corporation known by individuals due to its aggressive expansion and the sign of replacing the Starbucks in China. However, only 9 months after its IPO on NASDAQ, Luckin was accused of financial problems and huge flaws in its business model. Based on this scandal, through analysing the whole issue and some relative information, the key point of a successful short selling and the role that short selling plays in the capital market are considered. The result comes up that a clear evidence of the financial fraud or possible flaws is the key point during the process. Also, the short trades can be positive in the market’s perspective.
